Yuzu fruit and ginger root
I went to the big Sunday Market in Kochi Japan, in the south east coastal area of Shikoku Island to see all the local seafood and produce. The woman at this stand was selling the largest ginger root I've ever seen (best larger), she also had yuzu fruit (Citrus junos) and fruit juice, grown locally. Yuzu's flavour is tart, with a taste between grapefruit and orange. It is an ingredient of ponzu sauce and is also used as a fragrance in cosmetics and in refreshing yuzu baths, especially on the winter solistice, a custom dating back to the early 18th century. Winter solstices is coming up soon so get your yuzu bath ingredients!
